how do you file?

coasterphileApril 2, 2007

Everyone who seems to have any luck germinating their canna seeds says they file or drill holes. What's the best way to attack these little guys? I feel like I'm beating up my fingers since they are so small.

I hold the seeds with a small pair of pliers and use a small flat metal file. It works very well.

Grab with a pair of plyers, and use a file until you can barely see a white spot. Then sink in a glass of water for a day or two.

After that, some will plant in a baggie with humid peat moss, some plant straight in the ground.
